Intel vs. AMD: Battle of the world's smallest PCs

 

These incredibly tiny, amazingly quiet computers can fit almost anywhere and perform most any task. But who has the best concept for an ultra-small-form-factor PC--Intel or AMD?

Cool and quiet operation ; VESA mounting bracket included ; Supports mSSD storage

No USB 3.0 ports ; No eSATA ports ; Must provide your own power cable, memory, storage, etc

Amazing!!

 

i got this from another site to replace my am2 htpc.this little nuc has surprised me so much.it's tiny,sips power like a 25w light bulb and plays any movie i throw at it without a slight hiccup on my 50"plasma. MAKE SURE YOU HAVE THE MICKEY MOUSE PLUG...

size 4"x4"x2" ,power consumption,overall speed.even the box plays the intel tune :)

none at all ; MAKE SURE YOU HAVE THE MICKEY MOUSE PLUG POWER CORD

Great Case

 

Compact. Visual bios. Great idea

Do your research first, there are only a specific set of mSATA devices this will work with. it turns out that after 30 days of on and off troubleshooting, I couldn't return an mSATA that it turns out just won't work. It runs too hot. I sucked it up and...

SSD Boot Issue Fixed

 

After the BIOS updated I mentioned in my las review, the final fix to the SSD boot / crash issue was to remove the Muskin label on the mSATA board to allow the Intel thermal pad to reduce the mSATA temperature. With the label, the mSATA board ran at...

Tiny, fast, and drives two monitors. 3 USB ports and a GBE Ethernet port make it useful

Can have intermittent boot / crash issues if not setup properly

Intel #1 at IC's, Not #1 at Drivers

 

I installed the 0048 BIOS with no luck. Then I set Intel Dynamic Power Technology to OFF in the BIOS and that solved both the Win 7 blue screen issue and SSD boot problem. Also, for what it's worth, I set the video memory size to 64MB (it won't boot if...

Tiny, fast, simple and should be reliable. Also quiet

I had intermittent Windows 7 blue screen freezes and "no bootable device found" issues for a while. Happy that I seem to have found a fix for it (below)

Flawed design

 

Small form factor as a HTPC

Overheat like hell ; Never worked right. Replacement also cannot find the boot device (mSATA SSD) ; Can't be Intel let this product out the door ; Will never buy any of Intel's desktop products

Great for HTPC

 

I set this up as a HTPC and it works great. Running ubuntu and xbmc. Hardware video decoding works great.

Small and quiet. More than powerful enough for HD playback. Visual bios is neat

Does not come with a power cord... but not that big of a deal. Understandable that it was not included (international packaging)

Sweet Little Rig

 

Would be nice for a RF remote to power the PC when mounted to the back of a LCD or bluetooth included so we can save a USB port for the input dongle.

Very easy to setup opening the box was funny with the Intel jingle. I had doa memory the first time but I had some spare memory that I got in there and it worked perfectly. Everything works super fast just like a full pc with a ssd and ddr3. This was...

Didn't come with the 3 dollar laptop power cable. I knew this before I purchased it so I ordered one but really can't you include that
